I am not going to say much about this book. It covers the broad range of current and recently available electronic technology (including all forms of digital cameras) whilst information about legacy technology (such as 30-pin SIMMS, daisy-wheel printers etc.) has been placed on the books website. That website also includes updates and the complete text of the book. It is password protected and you will need a copy of the book beside you when you register because it will validate your registration by asking for what word is printed at a specific location in the book (the mechanism does not seem very secure as you could be using a library copy or one borrowed from a friend).

If you want/need a comprehensive guide to hardware for PCs this one is well-written and well-informed.
